St. Patrick School Reopens & Dedicates Library
With more than a year and a half of volunteer effort, led by Lupe Drysch and Julia Roman, the school library was reopened on Sunday, November 17, after the monthly school Mass.
Julia Roman is a past parent with four children who have graduated from St. Patrick School. She is also studying for her degree in Library Science. Lupe Drysch is a wonderful community member who came to our school having recently moved to the area, and wanting to be involved in a worthwhile organization.
Little did the school know that with the creation of this dynamic duo, we would be able to resurrect our library program, and have two extremely dedicated and caring friends of our school give their time, talent, and resources to lead the way in the education of our children. Each received a certificate of recognition from the office of Paul Krekorian, our City of Los Angeles City Councilmember.
The library was dedicated in honor of Lupe Drysch for her generosity in not only adopting our school and library, but for the gift of new flooring and colorful and age appropriate furniture for our students who visit the library. As Dr. Shoff often says, "Lupe, you are our library angel". Mrs. Drysch had no idea that the dedication was going to happen, however, the school had been able to contact her children to be present for this special occasion. (see photo below)

The St. Patrick School Library now has a group of dedicated volunteers who come twice a week to staff the library. They give our students the valuable opportunity to come and ignite their imaginations through the wonder of reading.
